      Ryan M Wow. This had such a Benson and Moorhead or 2004's Primer feel to it. Super low-budget science fiction where Franklin Ritch wears many hats as star, director, editor, and writer. AND, strictly dialogue driven. It's super commendable and I absolutely love when films like this get made. Winner of multiple awards at Fantasia & SXSW and a film all science fiction lovers should seek out OR individuals whom are aspiring filmmakers. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Apple S Fascinating film. I was gripped the whole way through. A unique and intelligent addition to the A.I. warning genre. The script is smart but not so complicated that I couldn't just about keep up. The movie had a warm, hypnotic, allure whilst maintaining a jarring strain too. Left me in a meditative trance and wanting to watch it again. Will I watch it again? Probably. Is it one of my all-time favourite movies. Not quite, and for that reason I've given it a 4 out of 5. But for a low budget movie, it's impressive and definitely worth a watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Roger L So poignantly told about the struggle of the human spirit and the evil that surrounds humanity intertwined with the modern world and AI as it is a reality in today's world. I view this film as a love story. Bravo! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Miche H Really refreshing to see ai portrayed in a different way then the standard "doomsday" take Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Jason A Thought provoking and interesting scifi film focused on AI. I enjoyed that this wasn't the typical AI turns on it's creators story. Instead here we get something more thought provoking centered on the ethics involved. Well worth the watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Thom G The Artificial Girl stands out as one of the most scientifically aware films in its genre, yet disappoints in the way it "solves" solidly raised issues by falling into the reheated ethnocentric myth of free will and all-too-human morality...

      Dais Johnston Inverse This movie recognizes that AI is scary and intimidating, but it also recognizes how that fact says more about human nature than it does some looming technological overlord... It’s this humanity that this film touches on, and then twists deliciously. Dec 7, 2023 Full Review Adam Kempenaar Filmspotting It’s a film that I’m sure some will decry as too talky… I feel otherwise, for several reasons, including its clearly intentional mise en scene – the lighting, blocking, editing, and the intimacy and urgency produced by those confined spaces. Rated: 4/5 May 26, 2023 Full Review Ty Burr Ty Burr's Watch List It’s a surprisingly tender drama of ideas that at times reminded me of a variation on the 2001 Spielberg/Kubrick film “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Rated: 3/4 May 5, 2023 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall The film essentially consists of three very talky conversations. This leaves it feeling a bit static, and also limits the development of the characters. But as a pointed piece of theater, it's riveting. Rated: 4/5 Dec 7, 2023 Full Review Erik Childress Movie Madness Podcast A smart sci-fi procedural that feels more timely than any film being unveiled now as it works in discussion of the worst horrors of cultural predators to the next potential evolution of A.I. to do our dirty work. Rated: 3/4 Jun 22, 2023 Full Review Andrew Parker The Gate Balancing difficult conversations about where technology is leading the human race with rapid fire dialogue and performance driven drama, The Artifice Girl is both a rarity and one of the biggest surprises of the year thus far.
